1st Month Out of 3 : My European Journey

What. A. Month.

I can’t believe it has already been 30 days that I’m in Europe. It went sooo¬†fast! It seems to me that it was only a few days ago that I left the comfort of my house, of my bed, and that I left my family behind to see a part of Europe that I had yet to discover.
